Their father stole the coins from the mint. He was the fence for the cashier. That is why he kept them in a safe deposit. He knew they were stolen. He should have told his children to take them to Europe for auction.

Wouldn't it be funny if he had forgotten all about them?

Or just melt them down

Worth WAY more as actual coins. Their melt value is more like $12,500 for 10 of them. A single 1933 St Gaudens sold for $7.5 million and they had 10 of them.

And destroy most of their value?

It's really difficult to pry gold from the hands of the Jew.

Now as anti-government as I am.....I know that there is more to this case than what this Jew rag is telling us. I, the same as most of you, thought "how dare that evil government!" but that's not what is going on here.

From memory: these coins were stolen or illegally sold by someone to someone else that knew they were not supposed to have them(whether that is right of the government or not is another story). The person who bought them was trying to profit from the new illegality of these coins. They were not trying to conserve or store wealth, they were trying to profit.

think of the billions stolen from you by politicians, government agencies and the very people you call neighbor.

There are 308 million+ in this country and each and every one of them is guilty to some extent by either enabling, demanding or benefiting from the theft.

For my part, as small as it is, I apologize and promise to do better.

About those billions in cash sent to Iraq ... I got to thinking. Paper money has a very short life. It wears out quickly because it's a piece of paper. Most people don't realize this, because the banks are constantly taking in old bills and replacing them with new bills. But who is going to replace the bills given to the Iraqis? Nobody, right? The Iraqi banks can't replace them without printing US currency, which (so far as I know) they are not doing. So, shortly all those billions in cash will cease to exist. They will fall apart in the hands of those Iraqis passing them back and forth. Poof! No more money. Which leads me to ask the question, "Did that wealth ever really exist at all?"

"There's no way these coins are real! Let's take them to THE MINT".

Forget about coin collectors or pawn shops who could also easily identify them and not immediately seize them.

However, a Philadelphia Mint cashier had managed to give or sell some of them to a local coin dealer, Israel Switt.

In 2003, Switt’s family, his daughter, Joan Langbord, and two grandsons, drilled opened a safety deposit box that had belonged to him and found the 10 coins.

Aww, some kikes got jewed, how sad :(

Still a good point being raised about precedents already being set for seized coins going to auction & the profits being split.

Those are some pricey coins at $8 million a piece.

That's what happens when they are systematically destroyed. In a way you could say society is trying to make whites more valuable.

Doubtful they are worth that. The highest price ever paid for one was just $7.5 million and that was when the entire world assumed there were only 3 remaining (and it was the only one not owned by the US government). This quadrupled the total known coins and I doubt they would hit as high a price.

It's not clear that it's a precedent. That could have been a one off deal with the treasury.

It was a one-off deal. That particular coin is the only one ever monetized and private sale allowed. There was a very specific auction set up for it. The final bid was increased by $20 to allow it to be monetized as legal tender and the proceeds were split. This was only because they government felt their case was not strong enough to prove where the coin originally came from nor where it had been in the meantime. In the case OP posted, there is no doubt about the provenance of the coins and that they were stolen.

Rule #1 never ever go to the government for help if you have any tangible assets.

Rule #2 never ever go to the government for help if you have any tangible assets.

Rule #3 never ever go to the government for help if you have any tangible assets.

Why would they have brought all of them in at once? Bring one in, see what they say. If they don't steal it, find a buyer. 7.5 million. Yay. Now take that 7.5 million and use it to find private buyers for the rest of the coins. Keep one as a momento to their father.

In 2015 the appeal was 9-3 in the gov. favor.

The fight over the coins was not over yet. Federal officials, who had been “weighing our options” since 2015, as The Post noted, scored a win in Philadelphia on Monday. In a 9-3 vote, the appeals court ruled in favor of the United States once again.
